Overview
The Center for American Progress' States of Change project documents and analyzes the challenges to democracy posed by the rapid demographic evolution of the United States from the 1970s to 2060, including the extent to which different demographic groups may be overrepresented and underrepresented in the political process. Center for American Progress has produced the most detailed available data on past and future demographic changes, including projections of the race/ethnic, age, and generational composition of every state to 2060, which has not been done for 20 years. This has allowed the project to promote a wide-ranging discussion of America's demographic future and what it portends for the nation's political parties and for public policy.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Climate Finance Regulatory Project  
The Center for American Progress is an independent nonpartisan policy institute whose work spans environmental and economic issues. The center will develop a climate change financial regulatory plan, working with a coalition of both climate and finance experts across the United States.
for scoping U.S.-China climate engagement  
This grant will support the Center for American Progress in organizing a series of climate dialogues between high-level Chinese and U.S. leaders, as well as work to bring together rising Chinese and North American climate experts. This grant seeks to build trust between high-level stakeholders in the two countries so they may work together to support increased climate ambition in both the U.S. and China. It also seeks to bring together young climate experts to share knowledge and develop joint strategies to decarbonize both countries.
for support of the fiscal policy and budget process reform efforts  
The Center for American Progress (CAP) is a multi-issue, nonpartisan policy institute whose core mission is to generate new policy ideas and translate them into progressive change. It regularly partners across the ideological spectrum to forge consensus policies and improve ways of governing. At a time when long-standing democratic norms face unprecedented strain, the center is focused on revitalizing public institutions and improving policymaking procedures. This project will advance work CAP has done to evaluate and propose changes to how the congressional budget process operates, including by researching and advancing proposals on emerging issues in federal budgeting.
